For kids safety

If one has children in the house, I would personally recommend the use of Metal rat snap traps to catch these pest in order to secure these kids safety and health from the use of pesticides. Some children can be quite troublesome and if care is not taken might come in contact with the pesticides which is equally 100 percent effective in get in contact with it using the mouth.

Pesticides for rats and mice

Pesticides for rats and mice
Pesticides are usually the last resort when you desire to eliminate rodents, considering the adverse effects it could have, if it's implementation is not done carefully. Rats and mice can be found in certain regions of a community, their spread and growth, relies greatly on how well the environment supports their existence. When they find sustainable means of survival, such as adequate shelter, warmth and food, the chances of survival in such regions is higher, because their rate of reproduction is greatly enhanced by the environment.

Rats and mice lives in wall cracks, large trash bins, unused equipments and padded furniture's and appliances where they can easily reproduce. Pesticide has an incredible strength in massive elimination of rodents, unlike traps, the implementation of this method is cost effective, because you can easily cover a good area once you have access to a particular pesticide.

Pesticides are highly toxic to rodents, so slight contact with the pesticide, would lead to complete elimination. The probability of pets getting affected when you deploy this method is higher, therefore the stringent rules of it's usage must be imbibed. Pesticides should be kept out of reach of children, and movement of pets should be restricted whenever you use pesticides, as it will help in mitigating the chances of any strange occurrence.

Whenever this method is implemented, the outcome is usually encouraging, because the level of efficiency is high.

• Large coverage of rodent control. • Highly effective. • Reduces physical danger's associated with metal traps. • Easy deployment. • Various pesticides are affordable.

Cons
• Can wipe away pets and cause human casualties, if handled carelessly. • Require proper washing of hands, and demands less human contact.

Pesticides for rats and mice

Pesticides for rats and mice is much better than using Metal rat snap traps, it cost cheaper and I have the guarantees that mice and rats will surely die. I have tried this method and they disappeared, I have not found them dead in the attic but they are not there anymore!

Pesticides

I prefer making use of pesticides, because I would say it has a higher conversation rate than the metal trap, and it is relatively cheap. Meanwhile the metal trap can not grantee you that the rat will be dead

On my place of work which is beside an unexplored forest lands of the province do have a lots of rats that either came from the wild or already breed inside the vicinity. My experience also is quite terrifying as there was a time that when I've slept at night a rat almost bitten and tore the flesh on my toes good thing is I'm not quite a deep sleeper and I mostly getting awake for a very little noise around my surroundings whenever I sleep. So that rodent maybe sense that I've woken up and run away.

Quite a lot of times also that my food stocks like noodles, coffee sachet, milo or just any other food are often get eaten by rats if I forgot to hang or place it on some hard plastic or glass container as bigger rats can chewed part of some plastic container just to get the food that they want. Its quite funny to tell this story also as my room mates soaps particularly his Papaya soaps are always target by those rats.

My boss had to use pesticides/poison just to kill those rats but they're quite easy to reproduce and I've seen rats whose really as fat and as big as a cat too maybe they had a lot of foods that they acquire here in our workplace so they never stopped coming here.

I live in a farmhouse. There is a granary and farmland near my house, which means my house is a breeding grounds for rats and mice. I know it is not healthy to use pesticides to kill rats and mice because it causes the risk of food poisoning. However, using a mouse trap to trap rats and then killing the trapped rats is a great nuisance. I cannot watch the rat die.

In the ancestral home of my husband where we first lived, rats and mice abound. We were trying our best to eradicate those rodents with the use of poison pellets and fly paper. But that’s only effective for the mice. It seems that the rats were intelligent. When we moved to our own house, we decided to use the black poison powder. Poured on a bait, usually meat or fish, the rats would feed on it. We had killed more than 20 rats in and outside our home plus countless of mice trapped on the sticky fly paper. Now our home is free of rodents for more than 10 years now.

I can only agree to pesticides usage when one is living all alone. It's much more safer that way because you wouldn't have to be worrying about anyone getting in contact with the pesticides. It can kill very well, so a lot of care should be constantly engaged in its usage. The other problem that I have with using pesticides is the stress of finding the dead rats.

They're both not effective for rats/mice. What we have is a rat cage where when they tried to get the food inside the cage, the cage will lock up and they can't escape anymore. No matter how hard they try to destroy the cage to get free, they can't because it's made of steel. It's so effective and useful but it can only capture one at a time. Once we got one, we just kill it by drowning them and then throw it in the trash bin or at the vacant lot.

The metal rat trap is more prefarable for me because when the metal trap finally gets the rat you will be able to see it easily before the rat will start smelling, but for the pesticide when the rat takes the drug it can die in an unidentified place and it will start smelling before you will now try to remove it.
